Welcome to LPD!

The Livermore-Pleasanton-Dublin Branch of AAUW, is one of over 1000 branches nationwide, representing more than 100,000 members who seek personal lifelong development and advocate social change and public policy consistent with gender equity.

Executive board meetings are held monthly on the first Wednesday and are open to all members. A monthly newsletter, The Grapevine, is sent to all the members and informs them of the monthly program, interest group meetings, and other activities.

Funds are raised during the year for local projects and Scholarships for the AAUW Fund, and to send local girls to Tech Trek – a one-week summer camp at Stanford University.

It’s time to renew your membership.  Or ask a friend to join!  The 2018 Membership Renewal Form is available on our website, along with information about online renewal.

Congratulations to this year’s Named Gift Award Designees, recognized for the work they have done this year to support our branch:

These outstanding women will be recognized at the June 16 event.

Congratulations to LDP member Charlotte Severin!  Her entry in the AAUW Annual Art Contest was one of six winners and will be featured on note cards offered to the membership in 2018.

The results from the vote on the national bylaws is in.  A quorum was reached, and the motion to have annual elections of 1/3 of the board was approved. The other measures failed, so membership will continue to require at least a 2-year degree and non-members will not be eligible to serve on the National board. See the full report

This year’s non-event fundraiser to support local scholarships is underway.  This year’s goal is to get 100% member participation.  We are currently at 60%, so please consider making your donation today (any amount welcome)!
